84-Year-Old Fights Off Burglar

Photo Gallery
Eighty-four-year-old Doris Thiele and her 59-year-old daughter, Helen, fought off a serial burglar they discovered in their home in Hampshire, England.  Heroin addict Leon Ingram, 34, is 6'3", while the elder Thiele is 5'4". Helen grabbed Ingram in a headlock, while her mother searched for something to hit him with. She took hold of a slipper, but thought better of it and settled on her father's walking stick. Ingram escaped by leaping through a glass door. Sentenced to three years in prison, he apologized to the Thieles for scaring them.
